Pristine Grace

It Is By Faith
by Henry Mahan

     The account in Romans of how Abraham was justified and received righteousness by faith was not recorded for his sake alone nor applicable only to him, but it is by faith that every believer is justified and sanctified. Righteousness shall be imputed to us, as well as to Abraham, IF WE BELIEVE GOD, Who is identified in Rom. 4:23-25 by the fact that He raised Jesus our Lord from the dead. To believe for salvation is not to believe only in the existence of God, but to believe on Him in regard to His gospel! Saving faith involves the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ, Who was promised of God, sent by God, bruised by God, raised by God, and seated victoriously on the Father's right hand.
